Remember the the CGT is only applied to the profit you make on it....and unless you really upgraded a lot our bought your property like 20 years ago you will be lucky to make any profit, and no profit is no CGT :)

You shouldnt have to pay CGT - unless you rent the house out! 

As long as you have been french resident ie filling in french tax forms etc;

Usually you have a year to sell ,, but that can be more .

I think that you would be very hard done by if you were charged CGT on your only house that was put on the market as you moved into temporary, rented accommodation in another country.

The notaire will look at the invoices and let you know what he will allow,usually a heating system yuo can off set if the property didn't previously have one ,same with kitchens and bathrooms but electrics might be regarded as maintenance, I've only been involved in the sales of three properties, all of which were renovated ,which meant basically everything was allowed as they were previously uninhabitable.
